Variety Care, a federally qualified Community Health Center, has targeted a distressed part of Oklahoma City for its next campus. Located within a "medically underserved" area with one of the highest areas of poverty in the county, this new Variety Care campus in north Oklahoma City will provide women's health services, prenatal care, postpartum care, pediatric/adolescent care, integrated early childhood development, Teen Tot clinic, parental and marital counseling. The new health center anticipates 90% of its clientele live in households at or below poverty. At capacity the center will serve 20,000 new patients.
The construction of the 35,000 square foot clinic was made possible with $5 million in New Markets Tax Credits from NMR and an additional $5.5 million from REI Development corp.
